The problem of scarcity of labeled pixels, required for segmentation of remotely sensed satellite images in supervised pixel classification framework, is addressed in this article. A support vector machine (SVM) is considered for classifying the pixels into different landcover types. It is initially designed using a small set of labeled points, and(More)
The problem of image object extraction in the framework of rough sets and granular computing is addressed. A measure called ''rough entropy of image'' is defined based on the concept of image granules. Its maximization results in minimization of roughness in both object and background regions; thereby determining the threshold of partitioning. Methods of(More)
Selection of a suitable classifier fusion scheme in the design of multiple classifier systems (MCSs) is a tedious task. To meet this we propose a neuro-fuzzy fusion (NFF) method for fusing the responses of a set of fuzzy classifiers. In the proposed method the output of the considered classifiers are fed to a neural network which performs the fusion task.(More)
The ‘Khasi hill sal’ forest ecosystem in Meghalaya, India represents the easternmost limit of sal distribution. We tested if tree diversity and compositional heterogeneity of this ecosystem was higher than other sal-dominated forests due to moister environment. Vegetation was sampled in 11 transects of 10 m width and up to 500 m length covering 5.2 ha area.(More)
—The objective of this paper is to utilize the extracted features obtained by the wavelet transform (WT) rather than the original multispectral features of remote-sensing images for land-cover classification. WT provides the spatial and spectral characteristics of a pixel along with its neighbors, and hence, this can be utilized for an improved(More)
Due to advances in the acquisition and analysis of medical imaging, it is currently possible to quantify the tumor phenotype. The emerging field of Radiomics addresses this issue by converting medical images into minable data by extracting a large number of quantitative imaging features. One of the main challenges of Radiomics is tumor segmentation. Where(More)
The present article proposes a fuzzy set-based classifier with a better learning and generalization capability. The proposed classifier exploits the feature-wise degree of belonging of a pattern to all classes, generalization in the fuzzification process and the combined class-wise contribution of features effectively. The classifier uses a-type membership(More)
